Abstract

This article shows the biomechanical diagnosis of the energy produced by the movement of the human body in elliptical pedaling and its transformation into electrical energy. Initially, an anthropometric study was carried out with 120 people, 60 men with an age of 30 ± 6.61 years and 60 women with an age of 30 ± 6.23 years -users of two gyms in the city of Quito that have in their facilities elliptical bicycles, used for exercise routines-, with the purpose of selecting the usable sample for the research. By means of the biomechanical study of the movement of lower limbs, simulating them as a 4-bar mechanism (crank-rocker), the equations of kinetic energy of the system were obtained. The pinion-chain transmission system of an elliptical bicycle was also redesigned, which transmits the movement of lower limbs to a generator, from which the necessary electrical energy is obtained to test a charging system for low-voltage mobile devices, producing a maximum charge in the shortest possible time. In addition, an energy storage system was implemented using a battery bank. With the use of LabView, voltage-time, current-current-time, power-time graphs were obtained in real time in the circuit, which, via USB, are stored in a database for further analysis.
